This year, UNM’s Office of the Chief Information Officer is moving its annual Tech Days event, which features technology sessions, discussions and hands-on demos of current and future technological innovations at UNM, online and dubbing it, Tech Days @ Home.
Tech Days @ Home is set for Thursday, June 4 and will offer a variety of online content and workshops. This event offers the University’s faculty, staff, and students an exclusive opportunity to learn about technologies on campus and helps align the entire technology ecosystem to a common vision and providing community stewardship with various partners associated with diversity. Continuing state health orders due to the coronavirus pandemic necessitated the move online this year.
More than 40 pre-recorded and live sessions will be available featuring a variety of service platforms including Microsoft Teams, YouTube and Zoom. Some vendor webinars are held at scheduled times, and may require registration. Look for the calendar icon for scheduled sessions.
This year’s keynote address, titled “How Technology is Enabling UNM to Meet the Needs of the Future,” features UNM Senior Vice President for Finance and Administration Teresa Costantinidis and UNM Provost and Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs James Holloway. The keynote, which will also include IT staff from across campus, will be held live from 10 to 11 a.m.
Additionally, experts in a variety of fields will be on-hand to give demonstrations and answer all types of questions. Many workshops this year focus on different aspects of Adobe. In different workshops, Mary Elkins, Alex Wrigley, Donna Caldwell and Chris Paul navigate the world of Adobe including Adobe Lightroom, Adobe Photoshop and more. Other workshops tackle issues like managing remote meetings and how to access UNM desktop applications. Some vendor webinars are held at scheduled times and may require registration.
